stars and planets (Bradford)

Through crisp air I viewed the Summer Triangle rising.

Deneb in the middle. Never really noticed that before.

Spotted Altair and its companion. Why can I never remember... [ed: Tarazed!]

Looking north, I saw a big dipper scooping up water and a big W rising.

The old Moon was bright. Jupiter beige. Yes! Got it. Saturn dim, about 3 magnitudes less, about 20° away.

I kept looking and finally tagged a simmering Venus.

The increasing glow in the east. Beautiful sky. I was headed for a window less room...
